Interviewed on Sky Sports after the defeat in the Final Test versus Pakistan, England’s Head Coach said “I will try and catch some county cricket between now and the end of the season but it could be difficult to fit it in”. I would suggest Mr Bayliss stops wasting his time attending ODI and T20 internationals, leaving that to his “coaching staff”. Instead he might find one or two batsmen to replace those who have failed consistently to perform – Hales, Balance, Vince immediately spring to mind.
The “selectors” (who are they?) apparently watch so little county cricket (and only Div.1 by all, accounts – another mistake) that it is no wonder our old friend Ian Bell is now being touted for a recall.
Just what the blood hell do these “coaches” do all the time?
